Thank ya Mr. King
Let us hope Microsoft made a product that is compatible with an older version.
I spoke with a friend of mine who works for Microsoft and he was telling me it should be a straight forward easy process. Load up the external go to control panel, load the files from the hard drive. He said it will be just my files, I will have to load my software to the new machine.
Waiting on new pc, I'll keep ya posted how it goes for future searches.
